Barbie for big girls.

Next Celebrity Silkstone is….Elizabeth Taylor

The news coming from the 2012 Italian Doll Convention is that the next Celebrity Silkstone will be Elizabeth Taylor.  Mattel has not confirmed this but I am assuming it was a Mattel Representative who shared this information in Italy last week.  This is not suprising as they already have the face mold.  The speculation has already begun on which outfit she will be sporting.  My vote goes for the white gown in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof and I would DIE if it came as a gift set with the slip dress as well…..ohhhhh pretty please.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof



Although…I have to pay tribute to some of these looks as well.  Liz, you were one gorgeous lady.

    Wow this is like a dream! After the success of the first celebrity silkstone Barbie, Grace Kelly, I was hoping Mattel would make more! I was hoping Barbie would work with another iconic fashion icon from the 50’s rather than modern day celebrities! I hope you are right!! Elizabeth was one of my choices after Audrey Hepburn and Marilyn!!

      To add to a list of possible outfit suggestions, I really like her dress at the 1954 academy awards! There was a ooak Liz Taylor charity doll based on that dress! It would be stunning if she was featured with it!

    • Exciting isn’t it! Sources inside Mattel have confirmed this one so she is being made and she is scheudled for release this year. I am really, really hoping we will see the prototype at Barbie Convention in July…or at least some promo shots.
